From the opening scenes, you're pulled into the young men's vitality & their eager quest to uncover
evil-doers...as Scotland Yard bumbles along. Snappy dialogue's good for smart kids, better for adults. Film critics will likely pooh pooh the "here's what i'm gonna do, now here i am doing it" attacks by Holmes, but i loved understanding his logic!
Great cinematography (think combo of "The Matrix", "Sin City"). It was fun to see Holmes & Watson in their "formative years"(versus most portrayals of middle-aged Holmes & Watson). Plus, Robert Downey, Jr's interpretation of Holmes' struggles with "inner demons" has a strong ring of authenticity about it (perhaps from RD Jr's own similar brilliance & experiences?). Jude Law's Watson was also vibrantly portrayed ... not as usual "stodgy Watson". Rachel McAdams' role as Irene Adler was low on "believability" meter, but she did her best with role, as it was written. Mark Strong's Lord Blackwood, was a gleefully malevolent "evil genius".
